Birth Of A New Year!


Welcome to the birth of a new year...2015 to be precise! In honor of that, we've decided that the Dreamweaver Stencils monthly challenge for January will be Birthday Wishes. We'd love for you to play along with us, and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post, or on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...and remember, using Dreamweaver products gets you bonus points towards an extra stencil!

I would like to wish a very special Happy Birthday to Lynell Harlow the amazing owner of Dreamweaver Stencils.  Enjoy your special day on January 4th!!

Here is how my card was made;
1.  Rub Hawaiian Coconut Oil Soap on the back of LL487 Vertical Balloon, LL466 Christmas Package (works great for Birthdays!!) and LG704 Birthday Words. Remove one side of the carrier from Double Sided Mounting Paper and place stencils, soap side down on the sticky part.
2.  Using a straw cut diagonally, use it as a spoon to place Micro Glitters from Stampendous in Pink, Orange and Lime.  Rub glitters onto paper, turn upside down over a trash can and shake off excess glitter.

3.  Place stencils, stencil side down on the table and remove Mounting Paper.  Sprinkle paper with Crystal Micro Glitter and shake off excess.
4.  Place LX7027 onto a white square card and sponge with Pearlescent Orange Brilliance.
5.  Mount pieces onto card as shown layering onto burlap.



Of course, more birthday inspirations coming your way from our "A" team:
